Hi my name is Daniel McMahon and at Quakers Hill Public School I coordinated the used of the Connected Classroom and led workshops to give all teachers the skills to embed this interactive resource into their teaching and learning programs. We participated in virtual excursions, district debates and the Climate Clever Program.
From here, I then developed the ‘Virtual Connected Communities’ program, which looks at utilising schools in the district to share experiences and develop joint programming experiences for their students. So far we have had music and dance lessons and have participated in a visual literacy unit with other schools. We have just began to link our ATSI students and work as a cluster of schools to give these children in-depth learning experiences.
If anyone is interested in participating in the ‘Virtual Connected Communities’ program please let me know. I look forward to sharing ideas.
